We drove over 400 km round trip just to eat here. Actually I am sitting waiting for my fifth portion of lamb. Served only with potatoes and lamb fat dripping everywhere it is meat heaven. Huge woodfired oven. Shame it does fruit for pudding but even heaven has to have faults. Now where's my next plateful?

Indigenous South-Carelian dining. Only one thing on the all-you-can-eat menu: Traditional "Särä" lamb stew from Lemi
